Top Two Tuesday!

Top 2 Favorite US Cities!

1.  Charleston, SC

This is hands-down my favorite city in the entire world for many reasons.  First-of-all, it is beautiful.  Secondly, it is sooooo historic, but also has a beach within 20 minutes, so you never get bored and there's always something fun to do whether you want to be busy or simply relax.  Finally, the main reason Charleston is probably my favorite city is because I have so many fond memories of this place.  We started going here as a family when I was around 13 years old.  I remember taking carriage rides through the city, and playing on the beach.  Also, when I was in early college, my church would take mission trips to this area and we would help build homes for low-income families.  Now that my sister lives a mere 2 hours from here, I hope to be visiting again very soon!  =)

2.  Nashville, TN

Yes, I know it's a little hokey to say that the city where I live is one of my favorites, but I truly think this is one of the best places to live.  I moved to this city 4 years ago thinking that I would live here a year, get whatever it is that made me want to move here out of my system, and then head back to Knoxville (where I'm from) and live happily ever after.  Well, it didn't take me 3 months of living here to realize this is the place for me.  The people here are so friendly, and it was so easy to make friends.  Also, there is always something fun going on, and usually it's not very expensive...maybe even free.  Even though I still enjoy going home to visit my friends and family from East Tennessee (and sometimes am even a little sad to be leaving them), I know that Nashville is now my home!
